Dottie Kelly

Dottie Kelly is a powerhouse blues singer with over 20 years of performing experience. She was born in West Palm Beach, FL, on March 13th and later moved to Clearwater, FL, where she attended St. Pete Junior College and earned her associate degree in accounting. Dottie sang in a Baptist church, which is where she developed her talent for singing and later followed her aunt, Betty Padgett, a well-known singer out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, to her various shows. Aunt Betty eventually asked Dottie to sing background with her and Joey Gilmore. From that point on, Dottie has traveled to various states, and opened for many artists from around the world. Those experiences mixed with pure raw talent, have made her a bona fide soul singer.

Dottie released her first promo CD in 2012 and her single “I Don’t Want No Man Like You” in December 2020. She has also released her CD “Dancing Shoes” in March 2022. Dottie has been requested to perform on several occasions with Darrell Raines, Otis Cadillac, TKBlu Band, Ladies of Soul, and Legendary Joey Gilmore band, just to name a few. Her soulful voice and natural stage presence is a force to be reckoned with. Dottie Kelly and Darrell Raines, a duo act, made it to the finals in Memphis on May 10, 2022, at the IBC.
